To the Native Americans, the mourning dove represents spirit and communication with the spirit. They believe that when the mourning dove appears, there will be opportunities and messages for growth. Native Americans believe that the cooing of the dove could coax rainfall. In fact, they believe that the mere appearance of a dove was a sign of rain. A few cults believed that it was the cry that was heard, indicating a soul passing peacefully from earth. Others believed the dove carried the souls to the heavens.
Gypsy folklore believe that doves are messengers of love, linking our hearts to the spirit world.
Mourning doves represent peace and safety. However, a pair of these doves, in literature, presents a picture of devotion, love, and friendship.
The mourning doves are said to encourage healing, after one lets go of emotional baggage. They represent forgiveness, release, peace, and finally moving on, or forward.
